Deaf Culture Training
DSU provides training to help foster a compassionate environment and cultivate a culture of allyship for the Deaf and hard of hearing communities.
Why does Deaf Culture Training matter?
Consider hosting Deaf culture training to provide an education about cultural competency and expand your understanding of Deaf and hard of hearing culture.
Learning about Deaf culture requires people to also learn about sign language because Deaf culture and sign language are so interconnected.
Training can help eliminate stereotypes, assumptions, and discrimination. Cultural competency will provide an understanding of what it means to be Deaf, what accommodations may be required, and how to connect beyond the language barrier so everyone can effectively collaborate.
